Janet Barton (Physiotherapist) "Check & Treat"

"Check & Treat" looks at both horse and rider to identify and if necessary treat any areas that might be causing problems.

First, there will be an assessment by Janet to establish whether there are any problems (muscular- or skeletal-based) which might benefit from treatment. Second, if required, treatment of horse and/or rider by Janet (this element not always necessary).

For more details, or to book your place, please contact Violet Hill on 01603 721794 or use our contact form.

More about Janet Barton, ACPAT Category A Equine and Human Physiotherapist

Janet is a fully qualified veterinary physiotherapist, having undergone 9 years of study to achieve her status starting with GCSEs, A Levels, then a degree in human physic, followed by 2 years of clinical work. This study built the foundations for the animal studies, which then took an additional 2 years.

She has extensive experience working with horses, having competed since the age of eleven, achieving Senior Nations Cup status, and has trained riders of all ages and levels. These skills have left her well placed to not only understand the physiotherapy needs of the horse and rider, but also the stresses and strains which occur in competition, whether physical or psychological.
